View from Rodina Mat

•  HDR Photo

If it wasn't for that cluster of buildings on the right side of the photo, you'd be hard-pressed to believe a city was anywhere nearby.  But in this case, not only is a city nearby, this photo was taken in the heart of Kiev.  Of course, most of Kiev is more densely built-up than what you see here, but Kiev is a very liveable city, with many parks and open spaces (though I'm sure there a many people who would like to change that, for a piece of the action, that is).

This is the view from the base of Rodina Mat, the "Mother Motherland" statue in Kiev.  The gold-domed buildings are part of the Kiev Pechersk Lavra complex, and in the bottom right are sculptures on the grounds of the Museum of the Great Patriotic War.
